Reading

Find a DVD case or the back of a book. Read the blurb at the back to find out what it is all about.

 

Spelling

On page 17, we will be looking at the "oa" family of sounds. They can be written as oa: goat in a boat, ow: blow the snow or o-e: phone home.

  1. Fill in the oa family of sounds using the pictures as clues.
  2. Circle the word which has the correct spelling choice as write it on the the board.
  3. Using the letters the octopus is holding, make three words using the oa family of sounds. Use a different spelling choice for each one. (There are loads more than three words you can come up with!)

 

Maths

I have set some Mathletics challenges for you to complete this week. I would like you to try to complete these by yourself however you can use objects or drawings to help you if you need to. It will be nice to see how you have progressed over this time I've not seen you!

Fab Phonics

Find Page 8 where we will be reading Kate's postcard from Greece. Read the postcard through first. Then go back through the postcard to underline and hold the hands of all of the special friends. Now have another go at reading the postcard. Is it any easier?

 

Talk for Writing

We will be working from pages 15 and 16 today. Read Fergus' poem about his treasure box. On page 16, read and solve the riddles (clues) from the poem. Check back in the poem if you need to.

 

Maths

On pages 22 and 23 we will be multiplying which means grouping into equal groups. The book introduces the x symbol which means "groups of." So for the example: 2 x 3 = 6, you can read it as "two groups of three lions equals six lions."

  1. Read each maths story to find out how many animals are in a group and how many groups we have. Draw circles around the objects to group them making sure each group has the same amount inside. They must be equal!
  2. Can you group the giraffes into groups of four and the zebras into two groups?

Extra Challenge

The number lines show counting in groups of 3, 4 and 2. Can you fill in the maths stories with the information on the number lines?

 

Grammar

On page 13, we will be looking at the "ai" family of sounds. The letters ai: snail in the rain, ay: may I play? and a-e: make a cake all make the same sound.

  1. Circle all of the ai family sounds in the words.
  2. Write the ai family sounds to complete the words. Remember: ay: may I play? is usually found at the end of a word.
  3. Write rhyming words using the same ai family sounds for fame, jail and bay.

Fab Phonics

First, follow the link to watch an episode of Geraldine the Giraffe as she hunts for sounds around the house.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRTITdRL_cU

Find page 5 with Geraldine the Giraffe. See if you can find things around the house with the ea, a-e, i-e, u-e and aw sounds. If you need inspiration to help you, watch the videos that match the sounds on YouTube. 

 

Grammar

On page 8 we will be using capital letters and full stops in some sentences. You were all fantastic at spotting where they needed to go in class. Remember, a sentence will always start with a capital letter and will usually finish with a full stop.

  1. Circle the letter that should be a capital letter in each sentence.
  2. Time to be a mini-teacher. Tick the sentences that use capital letters and full stops correctly. Can you fix the broken sentences.
  3. Write the word at the start of each sentence using capital letters correctly and punctuate each sentence with a full stop.

 

Talk for Writing

We will be working from page 11 today. This will be a great chance to practice being a teacher and correcting all of the capital letters and full stops that are missing from Sayeeda's diary. Don't forget that names will need capital letters too!

 

Maths

We are working from pages 12 and 13. It's addition time! Read the maths stories and use the pictures to help you solve them. You could use objects to help you count such as: marbles, pasta shells, counters etc.

Now Try These

  1. Look at each set of pictures. Count each "part" and fill in the missing parts of the maths stories. Use the pictures to help you add the two parts together to find the total (the whole amount).
  2. Now we will use a number line. Read each maths story then put your finger from the first part on the number line. Jump forwards the number from the second part to count on. The number you land on is the total.
  3. Read the problem where Anya is picking raspberries. Draw out the raspberries to make each part. Write the maths story to help you find out how many raspberries she has.

An Extra Challenge

This time, Ted has got three different groups of fruit. That's three parts to your maths story! Write your maths story and find out how many pieces of fruit he has in total.

 

Topic

Music

How can we describe the pitch of sounds?

In today’s lesson we'll be learning about sound. We will be learning about how sounds can sound different. Some have a high noise called high pitch and some have a low sounding noise called low pitch. We will be looking at how vibrations can change the pitch. You will need a piece of paper, a pencil and your wonderful brain!

Grammar

We will be working from pages 2 and 3 today. This activity is looking at forming sentences in more detail. A sentence is a group of words that need to be written in the correct order to make sense. Remember to read the sentence aloud so that you can check that the words are in the correct order.

 

Maths

Building on yesterday's work on matching numbers written as words, I have assigned 3 Mathletics activities for you.

Science

How do we hear?

In today’s lesson, we will be learning about sound. We will be specifically looking at how our bodies allow us to hear sounds. We will then learn that not everyone has the ability to hear things and we will look at what deaf people may use to hear or communicate.
